A LOT OF GOOD THINGS!
NEW! VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL AT ST ANDREW’S begins Monday July 18, and goes each weekday morning (9 am to noon) through Friday, July 22. Open to students ages 4—10, this will be fun and illuminating! Call the church at 627-5330 and tell all your friends and family members with kids!
The Nursery is OPEN! We are blessed to have our nursery open for those teeny ones too squirmy for worship, at our 10:00 am hour. We sure could use a few willing spirits to sign up once a month or so to help staff it, and this would be a wonderful thing for Moms and Dads—especially seekers who might come along! Please see Heather Anne to add your name to the list.
NEW! OUR NEXT SUMMER BOOK CLUB SELECTION is “CRAZY CHRISTIANS: A CALL TO FOLLOW JESUS,” by our new Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry. We’ll meet up at the Rectory once after we read the book to talk about it—date and time TBA—so please sign up in the Parish Hall if you’d like to order a book ($15.00). FUN AND GREAT SUMMER READ!
WE COULD USE YOUR HELP! We’ve got some spots for the 10:00 am worship that could really use some volunteer minister help—please see Father Chip or call Heather Anne if you can help us out with any of the following ministries this summer:
- BE A NURSERY HELPER—and play with our children, so our parents can pray!
- BE AN USHER—and greet all our beloved with a friendly face!
- BE A COFFEE HOUR HOST—and extend our feast into more holy time together!
SAVE THE DATE: Our annual PARISH SUMMER POTLUCK DINNER PARTY at the Rectory will be on Monday, August 15, at 6:00 pm. Please make it a point to join us!
THE VINEYARD SOUND IS BACK AGAIN THIS YEAR AT ST ANDREW’S on Friday nights! Concerts begin at 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm, and they’re a Vineyard (and St Andrew’s) tradition for a good reason—it’s a great time! We could use some volunteersto take ONE FRIDAY NIGHT to be here as St Andrew’s “chaperones”—so if you can help us, please sign up in the Parish Hall—and your concert is FREE!
WE WELCOME TWO NEW STAFF MEMBERS: Griffin McMahon is our new Organist and Choirmaster, and Laura Noonan is with us to begin staffing the Nursery. Please welcome them in to our wonderful faith community!To learn more about our staff, check out the tab above About Us.
